Consult a reputable VW specialist to get an independent opinion on the misfire, what it is and whether it is normal.

If that fails then go to the consumer affairs people in your state.

BUYING used is not going to cost you as much as buying new, but you need to know about cars or have the help of someone who does. Otherwise, buy new and get the security of a warranty. The new car will also be safer. Generally they have more safety features built into them and will probably use less fuel than an older car. Look at the Mazda 2, Toyota Yaris, Nissan Tiida, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Getz and VW Polo.
The hunt is on
WE CONTACTED Subaru who, quite rightly, wouldn't comment on what the problem might or might not be without driving the car.
